We investigate the temporal correlations of radiation intensities of a multimode Fabry–Pérot semiconductor laser. Strong intensity correlations with a fixed phase shift between different longitudinal modes of the laser are revealed. The second g(2) and third g(3) order intensity correlation functions are studied to clear the character of the intermodal coupling.
